Every year we publish a list of the year’s top 10 most egregious acts of anti-Christian defamation, discrimination and persecution in America. Some things on the 2011 list might surprise you.
For example, a Christian teacher was suspended after school administration discovered his support of traditional marriage posted on his personal Facebook page. In Montana, pro-lifers were attached by a firebomb during a prayer vigil in front of an abortion clinic. Police officers remarked that pro-lifers should expect this sort of reaction to their activities. A Bible study was shut down in San Juan Capistrano, CA after officials claimed the group needed a permit because it posed a risk to public safety and health.
Christians are being subjected to harassment, discrimination and persecution because of their faith.

The Top Ten Anti-Christian Acts of 2012
1. A Florida high school teacher was exposed after they invited a terrorist sympathizer to give pro-Islamic lectures in her classroom over the last three years. The speaker, Hassan Shibly, is on record standing up for the terrorist organization Hezbollah and defended a radical Imam who was killed after shooting at members of the FBI.
2. At the Minneapolis Pride Festival, a Christian evangelist was pushed into a “free speech” corner by local officials. Organizers from the parade asked the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to make a “free speech zone” far away from the festival for people who disagree with homosexuality. The Board agreed, and now all opposition to the sin-fest are exiled.
3. California legislature voted to stop Christian counselors from providing help for children struggling with same-sex attraction. Now, counselors are unable to even suggest that it’s possible to overcome same-sex attractions.
4. Churches in NYC were given six weeks to re-locate after an appeals court ruling upheld evicting the churches from the public schools they were meeting in. The City’s rule was clearly based on the religious content of the churches’ speech because non-religious groups are still allowed to rent the schools.
5. In Hawaii, a new law can now force churches to make their property available to homosexuals for civil union ceremonies. While the law does protect pastors from having to perform the ceremonies, it does not provide protection for church property. Now, if a church refuses to allow the ceremonies on their property they could be subject to sanctions or fines.
6. ABC began airing “Good Christian Belles” or G.C.B. The show was originally titled “Good Christian B*****”. The show was a cheap attempt to portray Christian women in the worst possible light.
7. President Obama endorsed homosexual “marriage,” invoking Christ to try to justify his anti-Christ position. In his announcement, Obama said “…when [I] think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated.”
8. Radical homosexual activist, Dan Savage, made crude insults towards Christian students during a journalism conference for high school students. Savage is famous for producing an anti-bullying campaign that encouraged young people to come out as homosexuals. At the conference Savage engaged in a anti-Christian, Bible-bashing diatribe, hurling insults at the Christian students.
9. At the Democratic National Convention God was booed by a large part, if not the majority, of the attendees. This was just another indicator of the brazed, public hostility towards God within the political parties.
10. A group of peaceful demonstrators were recently assaulted in Little Rock, Arkansas during a rally against Obama-care and it’s abortion mandate. Thankfully this was all caught on camera, along with the man’s license plate number. But the police were slow to act, and seemingly had no interest in finding the aggressor.
11. Over the summer a study came out of the University of Texas, Austin that showed that children of homosexual parents were worse off financially, mentally, and relationship-wise than those with married heterosexual parents. There is a difference between children of married, heterosexual parents and same-sex parents. But the Professor who led the study was placed under an investigation by the University after homosexuals became enraged over the results.
While at the 2012 Soul Train awards on BET, Actor Jamie Foxx told the audience to ““Give honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama.”
12. Target took a controversial and anti-family stand when it decided to support homosexual activist groups with the proceeds from a collection of “gay pride” T-shirts sold by Target. They decided to do so even after voters throughout the country, including just recently in North Carolina, have taken a stand against homosexual marriage. But, instead of allowing its customers to voice concerns, Target has decided to block emails.
13. The “chief diversity officer” of Gallaudet University, Dr. Angela McCaskill, was placed on paid leave and faced punishment and the possibility of loosing her job simply for signing a bill that asks for the issue to be put up for a vote so Maryland citizens can decide whether to accept or reject the redefinition of marriage.
14. A gallery in Boston allowed a portrait of Obama that is clearly mocking Christ. In the painting Obama has his arms outstretched and a crown of thorns is placed on his head. The painting is called “Truth”.
